Mercedes-Benz Blitzen Benz concept was designed by George Yoo, who is a designer at Mercedes-Benz Research and Development in Carlsbad, California.

Mercedes-Benz Blitzen Benz concept was developed during his final year at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, This concept car has been designed as a futuristic racing vehicle to be used for testing and evaluating cutting edge technology. It is derived from two different sources. The main inspiration behind the idea is from original Blitzen-Benz from 1909 that had a long tubular shape and rear cab positioning. On the other, Alex Erlandson work of creating sculptures from trees that were grown into certain shapes/patterns influenced Yoo considerably to contemplate what if automotive parts were to be grown and tamed to hold certain shapes.

The exterior design is a base for the organic structure and the individual wheel pods are there to sense as to when the inside electric motors need to be cooled down. When the cooling will be required, these structures will open up in the same way as the plants do to receive the vital sunlight. . The individual wheel pods are held in place by this organic part. These can sense whenever the electric motors inside need to be cooled and the structure would then open up. The cool-blue color of the lighting system has been inspired by the bioluminescent capabilities of deep sea creatures.

It is powered by an advanced next-generation Hygenius hybrid hydrogen engine and four in-wheel electric motors. But that is not all, enhancing its visual beauty even further is the hydrogen storage tank located below the cockpit that shows the fuel level in a small window giving a visual sense of water being recycled throughout the vehicle.
